An Israeli court in the Nazareth district has decided to keep Palestinian poet Dareen Tatour under house arrest, easing some of the restrictions imposed on her since last year, including allowing her to work from 10:00 AM to 6:00 PM on weekdays under the condition that she is supervised by her boss.

Tatour was placed under house arrest a year ago after she published a poem about the current Palestinian uprising. Israel has accused her of inciting violence.

Taqfeeq Tatour, Dareen’s father said, “We asked the court to end house arrest, but the court refused and only allowed her to work from 10:00-6:00 PM under the condition she is supervised by her boss. House arrest will remain in effect and she will still not be able to use the Internet.”

He concluded by saying, “This is a positive move but we will keep calling for her final release.”
